Larry Under the Bridge Ministry
Sign up to bring homemade Easter cookies or to help pack lunches after Easter worship.
Mission Committee will continue to collect monetary donations for purchasing food to pack for our Larry Under the Bridge lunch packing. It costs about $200 to pack the 24-30 lunches.
Please mark any donations “LUTB” on your giving envelopes. Thank you!
Last month, we affirmed our commitment to ensure the work of the church continues and hire a part-time Bridge Pastor as soon as possible. We quickly arranged with the Reverend Barbara Jordan, (a frequent worship leader for us), to provide on call pastoral care until a Bridge Pastor could begin. It remains important for you to assist us by notifying Clerk of Session Kathryn Fresch or Deacon Moderator Peggy Waterman of any circumstance where the presence and support of the church is needed.
At the February Session meeting, we voted to hire 2 part-time Bridge Pastors, beginning March 1 and serving until May 31. A three-month time frame was determined to allow us time to complete the visioning process and begin to consider future needs.
The Session is happy to introduce the Reverends Dee and Kelly Talley, serving as Bridge Co-Pastors. The position is part time at 25 hours per week.
Kelly and Dee will lead worship, preach and administer the sacraments, moderate the Session and Congregational Meetings, be a resource to the Deacons, provide pastoral care, lead the Wednesday Bible Study and support other committees of Session as necessary.
The Deacons at Living Hope Presbyterian Church, along with the staff at LHPC and Dickson Hollow, have created an Area Guide for new residents and visitors to Dickson Hollow. Listed in the guide are area business and attractions – grocery stores, banks, healthcare, shopping and entertainments – within 5 miles of our church and the Dickson Hollow Senior Living Center.
Copies are available at church, at the main desk of Dickson Hollow, and in the mailroom of Dickson Hollow.
Welcome to your new home – stop in for worship, fellowship, study, or Friday prayers. We look forward to meeting you.
On 9-22-15, several of our Collaboration Planning Group, along with potential residents of Dickson Hollow, were able to participate in a ‘dusty shoe’ tour of the new facility. Here are just a few pictures. Thank you to Keith P. for the great photos!
This is the approach to the Living Hope Presbyterian Church entrance.

The following photos were taken of Dickson Hollow by a crew member of VJS Construction. We appreciate their sharing these photos with us! The first photo is the view from Pilgrim Road. The second photo is the view from Lisbon Road. On the Lisbon Road view, you can see BPCs entrance on the right. It’s the one story portion with the roof finished except for the overhang on the entrance area.
Taking the theme from the Lenten devotional, Cross-bound, by Chip Hardwick, , we will gather on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM on March 12, 19, and 26 to share in discussion about how God is moving throughout the church during this in-between time with inspiration, fresh vision, and an awareness of the new things God is asking of us.
We have this precious in-between time to explore the opportunities before us; to articulate the value we find in our life and ministry together; and to discern how those values will inform our new ministry at our new location. As Chip Hardwick, writer of the Lenten devotional, states, “[Jesus] calls us to take up our cross and follow him. [He] challenges us to put others before ourselves and join God’s mission to transform the world in love.” Let us be Cross-bound together as we travel this path of transformation… for ourselves… for others… for God.
